Cash Transfers, Food Rations, Shut Down of Lagos, Ogun & Abuja – Read All of President Buhari’s Directives Against Coronavirus

No more movement for everyone in Lagos, Abuja and Ogun State starting Monday, President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered.
The president revealed the directive during his presidential address on Sunday, sharing that it has become necessary thanks to the spread of coronavirus.
This order, of course, will not apply to hospitals, medical establishments and other health care-related facilities.
President Buhari shared that certain commercial establishments will also be exempt from the directive:

  • Food processing, distribution and retail companies
  • Petroleum distribution and retail entities.
  • Power generation, transmission and distribution companies.
  • Private security companies.
  • Telecommunication companies, broadcasters, print and electronic media who can prove they are unable to work from home.
President Buhari also shared that those who will be most affected by the directive folks living in satellite and commuter towns will be provided with relief material to alleviate their pains.
Folks paying back loans received from Tradermoni, Marketmoni and Farmermoni will also receive a 3-month moratorium, which means they’ll pay nothing for the next 3 months.

The same will be applicable to Federal Government funded loans issued by Bank of Industry, Bank of Agriculture and the Nigeria Export Import Bank, President Buhari said.
The most vulnerable in the country will also be receiving “conditional” cash transfers for two months. We’re unsure what conditional means.
Internally Displaced Persons, thankfully, are not left out. President Buhari said they too will be receiving food rations for two months.
